But it won’t be a reform bill. Rather, Donna Weinholtz, wife of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Weinholtz, will be charged with possession of pot after authorities found she’d tried to send herself marijuana through the mail—and then discovered two pounds of it in their Salt Lake City home.
Needless to say, marijuana is illegal in Mormon-dominated Utah.
Federal prosecutors took a pass on the case, but now Tooele county prosecutors say they will proceed.
It’s a tangled tale.

SF Cops Will Get Assist From Mental-Health Professionals
